California has long been a pioneer in terms of climate policy; in 2018 then Governor Brown brought the state on a path to net-zero emissions by mid-century - even before the release of the IPCC report on Global Warming of 1.5C. With the creation of the LCFS CCS Protocol in 2018, California aims to spur innovation and tackle emissions from the transportation sector through CCS. Already, the policy has bolstered two CCS project announcements. However, California's climate and CCS momentum does not stop there; Lawrence Livermore National Lab just released a carbon removal roadmap, outlining the opportunities for carbon capture deployment in the state. At the same time, advocates are optimizing the path to meet climate goals from a resource and land-use perspective, while supporting the application of CCS beyond just in sectors within the scope of the LCFS.
